In response to the editorial “
Vigilantism, shaming won’t fix opioid problem,” I live across the street from a well known crack house. I’ve had my house ransacked for loose change and quick salable items. I’ve had networks of trails cut into my woods. They use the buffer of trees I keep up for privacy as a dumping ground for car parts, liquor bottles and worn out electronics.
They stalk my family members in the dark, early-morning hours out doing their chores and they drive golf balls at my horses relentlessly.
The police are powerless. I agree slashing tires is extreme but so is coddling criminals. Neighborhoods must unite and the law must be enforced.
